Wafer forcast steady but slower

According to a survey provided by SEMI, total wafer shipments are expected to experience robust growthan average CAGR of 8% from 2006 – 2010.
The leading suppliers of silicon wafers participated in a consensus survey, obtained from SEMI surveying the SMG members. This survey provides an outlook for the demand in silicon units for the period 2007 – 2010. The results show silicon shipments reaching 8,696 million square inches in 2007, 9,695 million square inches in 2008, 10,257 million square inches in 2009, and 10,840 million square inches in 2010 (please refer to below table). Total wafer shipments are expected to experience robust growth through the entire forecast period, with an average CAGR of 8% from 2006 – 2010.

"Growth in silicon shipments continues to be driven by 300 mm.” said Dr. Volker Braetsch, Chairman SEMI SMG and Corporate Vice President of Siltronic AG. “Total 300 mm area is expected to exceed total 200 mm area by next year. Yet, 200 mm wafers will likely continue to be an important part of the market.”
